Features and benefits

  • Discrete, easy application dorsiflexion assist
  • Versatile – can be used with lace or Velcro shoes
  • Acts as dorsiflexion assist
  • Optional forefoot support which enables use without shoes
  • Comes in 4 components with an optional 5th:
  1. Tibial ankle foot support: brace with 2 fitting areas which adapts to the anatomy of the patient. Includes a viscoelastic pad on the Achilles tendon and another on the joint area of the instep
  2. Traction tongue: introduced between the tongue and the shoelaces
  3. Elastic lace for traction: joins the tibial ankle foot support and the traction tongue, which regulates the level of dorsiflexion of the foot as required by the patient
